    FS: Mugello RS6, Alcantara seats, 01E trans, hybrid SRM turbos, ALL maintenance BEAST

    ASKING $26000

    Posted a gallery here:

    This is a 2003 Audi RS6, with a clean title. It is Mugello blue with a light gray interior. It has been converter to a special 01E manual transmission found in Germany. The transmission was imported and sent straight to audiS4parts in Arizona for complete disassembly and new parts. It also has a matching 3.89:1 rear differential to allow for a longer 1st gear and a very tall cruising 6th gear. This car will get close to 30 mpg on the highway. It is unique because it has full alcantara seats that were only found in the S6. They are very rare and even more rare are the alcantara door cards. The cluster was sent to Russia to have a color LED center display installed (it's the only RS6 in the U.S. that I know of that has one of these at the moment). It displays a myriad of information including VCDS like functions allowing you to read an clear trouble codes right from the cluster. The car has too many new parts to describe so I've tried to recall everything that has been done and list below. I have a full folder of recipients to provide the new owner. This is the most fun I've ever had in a car but I now purchased a newer Audi and this one is left to sit in the garage.

    The car has never been to the drag strip so I don't know how quick it is 0-60 or 1/4 mile and I have not had it on a dyno. MAF readings during tuning put the car at around 550 whp. It has brand new SRM hybrid turbos, AEM water methanol injection kit, larger brand new bosch 55 lb injectors, R8 coil packs, ceramic coated exhaust manifolds, Stage 4 extreme clutch and solid steel flywheel, 4 bar MAP sensor, brand new bosch 044 inline fuel pump. It's currently set to peak boost of 27 psi. Every conceivable piece of maintenance has already been complete. As you can see from the pictures, the engine was removed from the car and just about every gasket, seal, belt, etc was replaced even if it didn't need it. Also, parts were either hot tanked, sand blasted and many powder coated (like the valve covers and intake manifold).

    Items worth noting: There are a few small scratches that have been touched up with color matched paint. A couple on the front driver fender and on the rear passenger panel where the previous owner must have scraped it as they exited the car. There is a small rock chip in the windshield passenger side. The front driver fender has a small, scratch-less dent that could be removed by a dent removal shop. The front hood has two very small dings on near the front (I tried to get close ups of this). There is a small chip on the roof that has been color matched an touched up (about the size of a fingernail). Finally, if the car is driven hard, the added heat from the extra boost and the super close proximity of the starter solenoid to the exhaust manifold will cause the solenoid to stick until it cools. I have a brand new upgraded racing solenoid to install and it also has been heat wrapped but I haven't had time to install it. I will include it with the car. This issue was confirmed by the starter manufacturer and the person who sells the manual swap kit.

    In addition to all that has been done to the car, I have extra parts I will include with the sale of the car. Some of them include:

    An extra carbon fiber air box cover
    Extra set of K&N washable air filters

    Oh man, this is such a good deal. As someone currently in the process of doing the 01E swap, buying a car that is already swapped and sorted is clearly a much better way to do it. It would almost be cheaper to just push my car off a cliff and buy yours!

    In all seriousness, this is a beautiful car with all the right work done. I have spent a lot of quality time studying your swap thread, so thanks for all the info you shared.

    Good luck with the sale, someone is going to get a great deal and a great car!

    Gregg, thank you for the kind words. I'm glad my thread helped. It was a long road but I took my time and even kind of enjoyed the challenges.

    S8prototype- I've thought the same thing about the regret. If I don't get my minimum price I will end up keeping it but I have an s6 now and can't stand this beautiful rs just sitting....all the work, just hibernating. I think I'll go the rs7 route with the s6 and see how that plays out. One thing's for sure - that rs really turns heads and you get her above 40 and there are VERY few cars that can compete; Including my stage 2 s6.

    Yea, I'm right there with you on how much was done to the car so i know what you're going thru... I want the wife to just get an RS3 and i'll probably be set... but.. letting the original rare RS go is probably not an option! I mean.. I've replaced or upgraded almost everything and it's damn near new again... I don't even have a reason to get a new Audi but it's no longer my daily anymore either... just a toy to keep my mind off business 24/7

    Your car is basically my cars clone but 6 speed haha (other than the seats, but i have no reason to replace mine... yet) if i could have both i would!
